Becomes more or less a year, the sociologist Salvador Giner published his book The future of capitalism, A review of capitalism and its recent history. Recovered today the interview I did on the program To all The 2 and a review:
A review of capitalism and its recent history.
A provocative essay of an original thinker.
“What future for capitalism? If it does, what will it be? After the current economic recession, do we wait for other, worse maybe? What are the chances that an economic order other than replacing it? What is the probability that sink? If, instead of this acaezca, evolves without collapse into something different to what until now has been, what will be the new face of the world? What will be the impact political, environmental and cultural-of such a move? What will become of the opulence that capitalism has created for some and the misery that it has generated for others? Do you know the humanity to tame the logic of uncontrolled development that, to destroy our natural environment, leading us towards the abyss, the irreparable damage of their own future?”
